The Eye of Ra

A middle grade time travel adventure with cobras and crocodiles. BEWARE!

A week before their move from Colorado, Sarah and John discover a mysterious cave in the mountains behind their house. To their amazement, it transports them to ancient Egypt where they must overcome many challenges—cobras, spiders, sandstorms, scorpions, crocodiles, a thief, and perhaps the most difficult of them all: meeting new friends. In the midst of their adventures, besides solving the crime of who robbed the pyramid, they learn what it means to balance bravery with caution, to earn respect, the importance of sibling bonds, and what home really means. For fans who grew up on the Magic Treehouse series or The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and are ready for intense middle grade action, get ready to time travel through The Eye of Ra!

Status: Working on finalizing the draft, cover design and illustration, will be self-published.
